Ann A’s Bussage walk on 14th October likely to be strenuous

08 Oct 2017

Saturday’s walk from Bussage is more strenuous than moderate. There are 3 fairly long steep climbs, one at the end of the walk and one long, wet, muddy and slippery descent. I’m hoping if the weather stays dry it will improve a bit but it’s still likely to be bad.
